Defy The Distance Precision Rifle Series Points Race Match Event
Presented by Defiance Machine and hosted at LRC Montana.
 MATCH Directors: Glen Demaray and Brian Pulver
 Cost:$220 (no refunds)
Dates: September 8-9 Registration: Opens May 8th 
MATCH REGISTRATION LINK  Registration Closed Sept. 2nd at 11pm.
Round count will be 190-200 bring a few more to confirm zero, etc. Competitors will be able to check zero and drops at 100 yards, 400 yards and 700 yards on Friday the 7th from 2-7pm. (No other targets may be engaged at that time! Doing so will result in a match DQ!!) This is also the time for early check in though that will last till 8pm. Shooters arriving early Saturday can check in between 6:30 and 7:15 am.
There will be 10 field stages shot by everyone on day one’s COF at LRC. Day two will be 8 stages (9 if we exceed 80 shooters) facing the opposite direction which will be more quickly paced and require increased positional and time management skills. This should add some excitement to finish out the competition. The highest round count stage will be 15 and require a mag change with 10-11 rounds being average.
The only equipment restrictions are caliber, velocity and no more than 2 support bags. This means only 2 bags per shooter during engagement of any stage. Bags are limited to 12” cubed! Backpacks will almost always be allowed for shooting support.
The speed limit is 3,200fps for all calibers, chamberings allowed for this match range from 223Rem to 300WM. If at anytime your speeds are in question, you will shoot through a LabRadar or Ohler 35 to verify your speed. If it’s over speed then it will constitute an automatic DQ, no refunds will be given.
There will be only one match brief at the beginning of each day. You will start as a squad and move from stage to stage as a squad. We may provide squad cards to simplify proper rotation of the shooting order with in each squad. Example: Stage 1 shooter order is A-B-C, Stage 2 shooter order is B-C-A and so on as squads progress through each stage.
The COF will be simple and if you have any questions your R/O will answer them before you are put on the clock.
You will want to book Hotels early as Three Forks can get really busy with Archery Hunters coming in for the early season. Bozeman and Belgrade are also within 45minuts and have lots of hotels. Dry camping will be available on site, $20 for RV’s and $10 for Tents, please contact us with your intent as it will be on a first come basis. We can fit 12-18 RV’s on site!
Check in and Zero will be Friday Sept 7 starting at 2pm on the LRC Primary Shooting Facility. Friday is the only day you can check zero and the LRC Facility will go cold at 7pm for any last minute COF corrections. Competitors will receive the course of fire Booklets at check in.
You may sell your slot to another competitor but please inform us immediately via email and pass along all of their contact info!
Know your PRS Rule Book! It will be the shooters responsibility to honor the rules. LRC also has our own clarifications on positional rules, we will be sending those attached in our next email and posting them on our Article Page (Blog).
